Police recover 2 041 stones of bhang

03 May 2013, 18:31 James Kabotia

Police in Kirinyaga County on Friday recovered cannabis sativa worth KES 1.5 million at Kiriko village in Mwea constituency and arrested two suspects.

The officers, acting on a tip off by members of the public, raided the house of a suspected drug pusher at around midnight.

According to Kirinyaga south OCPD Apollo Anyonyi, the drugs were hidden in a gunny bag inside the house waiting to be supplied to various suppliers in the area.

He said the bhang was valued at 1.5 million shillings.

Two suspects were immediately arrested after they were found packing the drugs in gunny bags.

The owner of the house whom police described as the prime suspect however managed to escape and he is still at large.

This incident comes hot on the heels after police in Kerugoya recovered a consignment of bhang worth KES 1million at Kaariini village in Kirinyaga central constituency.

The drug consignment was one of the largest drug bust in the County.

The Administration police led by area commandant Zachayo Mbugua raided the homestead of a notorious drug peddler at midnight and recovered the drugs.

Mbugua revealed that the Cannabis sativa was in transit from Western Kenya via a Toyota Prado vehicle belonging to a renowned drug baron.

In February this year, bhang valued at KES 500 000 was recovered and one suspect arrested.

One suspect was also arrested but his other accomplishes managed to flee at road block.

Last month, a businessman was fined KES 1.4 million or three years jail term after he was found guilty of trading in narcotic drugs.

The accused, Dedan Kimathi, was convicted by senior principal magistrate Terresia Ngugi who termed illicit drug trade in the County as a menace which should be fought by all people.
